The goal is to provide an easy way to handle plugings in couchdb:

- how to build them against easily against couchdb
- how they can be handle directly in couchdb

Both are possible today, except build is really not intuitive. And
having to launch a plugin by setting ERL_FLAGS environment variable
manually isn't the best way. So this discussion is about finding a way
to register a plugin in couch, make couchdb launch it automatically if
enabled. Other part of the problem is to have a way to find couchdb
includes on the system to build the plugin againts them. That's part
may be handle by pkg-config.
